What Our Customers Say
I would like to commend the reptile expert! He put on an awesome show for our children and staff! Very educational!
This is the second year in a row that we have selected the reptile show prize program. The students love it even if they have already seen them before. It is a wonderful idea from a school's stand point because it also gives an educational experience to our students.
The Reptile Adventures Show was extremely educational as well as entertaining for everyone involved! It was great to see the large variety of reptiles including the larger reptiles which added to the 'WOW' factor for the students. Our students also received a lot of hands-on interaction with the reptiles which was very important for them. Every minute was action-packed!
Our parents were also very impressed with the show's professionalism. We had several positive comments and parents thanking us after the show.
It was a great show! Our students were completely engaged and extremely interested in Reptile Adventures. The reptile expert did a great job of providing very useful information while at the same time making his presentation entertaining to the students. The Reptile Adventures Show was excellent and I will definitely recommend it to others.
The reptile show was very educational for kids of all grade levels. Our students were completely engaged and received a great deal of information about reptiles and were extremely entertained at the same time. It would be nice to bring them back! Some of these kids never get to see and touch reptiles. The Reptile Adventures Show was excellent and I will definitely recommend it to others!
The students and the staff were very engaged. One teacher even said, "That's the best show I've seen in my 20 years."
